Neighborhood Chat / Re: MAN STEALING FROM BUILDINGS IN JH COMMUNITY
« Last post by Garsleat on Yesterday at 10:13:06 PM »
This has been such a problem when so many sales are online now. We did three things to try and alleviate the problem: first, we installed cameras at all major entrances; we put a new door on the mail room; and best of all, our super set up a system where he goes into the mail room at the end of each day and sends out an email to everyone in the building Google group (not 100% participation, but those online a lot to order packages also tend to be in the group) with apartment numbers of that day's recipients. People know to hustle down there....So far, so good, as far as I can tell.

Is there an outdoor surveillance camera that you could recommend? Thanks.

LOVE LOVE this place!! The prices are great and the food is super fresh. I can get a customer made salad for 5.00!!! Bagels are boiled and top notch. They have a good variety of spreads including a great tofu spinach/artichock and scallion. Service is good, fast and the place is beautiful.

Nearly 20 Queens eateries have made the prestigious Michelin’s affordable restaurant list this year, including seven for the first time.
One of them is Angel Indian.  (And it’s well deserved)

The other JH restaurant that earned this is Phayul (Tibetan)

There's a great flower stall (not quite a bodega but also not a florist) outside the KeyFood on Northern (corner 86).

I don’t know why I’m blanking on this. Maybe bc I’ve stayed indoors for the past year but where can I get some bodega flowers around the 80s between 37th Ave and Northern? TIA!

Hi JH Friends!

My name is Fio and today I officially founded a new club I have been thinking about starting for a while. It's called the Jackson Heights Urban Nature Club (JHUNC).

I created a Facebook group for it with the same name and here is the info of the club's description:

This club, founded in May 2021, is designed to help families of all shapes and sizes to connect with wildlife and the natural world. The club will be free/donation-based and all proceeds will go into buying materials for the club such as field guides, owl pellets, insect nets, binoculars or towards transportation to sites around the city (i.e. metrocards whenever possible, or gas if people are driving others beyond their own families). We will keep the vast majority of our events free and try to network with organizations around the city to get discounted rates to any museums, zoos, botanical gardens etc. We will set up a fund for people to donate to help other families attend events that are not free.

The club will grow and change as more volunteers and families join and express their interests.

Two main things we will do will be:

a) learning about local animals in the Jackson Heights area (bugs/insects, birds, squirrels, raccoons, opossums etc.) and playing games and doing activities in Travers Park, open streets and the Landing Lights open fields.

b) taking field trips as a group to sites around the city such as Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge, Queens Zoo, NY Aquarium, Central Park etc.)

Please post and ideas or desires for programming you may have and invite other parents and families who might be interested in participating. You can PM me (Fio) or email me at fionnualakerins@gmail.com with questions as well, but I will monitor the group closely and post updates here as things develop.

 :)

That's about it. I'll be working on creating a website too when I have time but for now Facebook will have the most updated info. I will plan to be at the Drag Queen Story Hour on the 16th and after the event is over will chat to people and do some recruiting. We may also have a special animal guest present!

Hope to meet some of you soon for some nature fun!
